Figure 7.5 Overall assessment of the effectiveness of existing measures to protect and manage the Region’s values
The assessment of management effectiveness for the topic of climate change is only in relation to management measures undertaken specifically to protect and manage the Great Barrier Reef. Trend is not presented where topics were not assessed in 2009: ports and shipping were assessed jointly in 2009 but treated separately here, community benefits were not assessed in 2009. The degree of complexity is based on the analysis provided in Table 7.2.
